Investing in Community

Anacostia Trails Heritage Area preserves and promotes the history, art, culture, and natural resources of our Certified Maryland Heritage Area.

20 Years of Service & Success

Since being certified in 2001, we have hosted the state’s War of 1812 anniversary, published a book about historic US Route 1, and are currently partnering on a Mobile Museum and Civil Rights Trail focused on Prince George’s County African American history.  Alongside these milestone projects, we also support local heritage sites by grantmaking, technical assistance, marketing, and sponsorships. Get to know us online or by stopping by our Heritage Center in the heart of hip and historic Hyattsville!
